Location description from owner

The Central Portugal region

The surrounding countryside in the Beiras region of Central Portugal is mountainous with rivers, said to be the cleanest in Europe where picnics and swimming from the numerous near by river beaches is very popular.

From the property you can see the Serra da Lousã mountain range. A drive through the mountains is worth a visit for the spectacular views and to visit the villages, many of which are seen clinging to the steep hillsides.

The winter weather is temperate. The peak summer temperature can exceed 36deg C. though some evenings one may require a light jumper.

The area is ideal for hiking, cycling, fishing and canoeing.

Vila Nova de Poiares

Vila Nova de Poiares is a typical rural market town about 3 Km away from the cottage, with numerous shops, 3 supermarkets, banks and post office, the local market is held each Monday morning. Local activities include canoeing on Mondego River, fishing (licence costs €7), swimming, Go-kart, cycling, walking..

Many of the surrounding towns and villages hold festas, particularly throughout the summer, with traditional songs, food and dancing.

Languages spoken: English and Polish.

Vila Nova de Poiares is well serviced by excellent roads and motorways giving access to many places of interest, notably the magnificent Buccaco Palace Hotel, once the property of the Portuguese Royal family, where you can stroll in the gardens and explore the woodland pathways. Swim at the river beaches at Gois and Varzea Perquena villages. Visit the Moorish fort at Lousa and the various medieval castles throughout the area.

Well worth a visit is the beautiful university city of Coimbra, once the capital of Portugal, and wander through the maze of little streets and sample Portuguese delicacies in the numerous cafes. Take the Tuk Tuk ride to get a panoramic view up the old cobbled streets to the university or a boat ride on the lovely Mondego River.

Above all you will have the opportunity in Central Portugal to experience true Portuguese hospitality.

“Perfection in Portugal”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2013

We stayed at Casa Branca for a week whilst travelling around the area, after a long day out it was lovely to come back to the villa and spark up the BBQ and open a bottle or two of the local vino and cool off in the beautiful pool, Bruce and Bella were always around if needed but not intrusive, we had a wonderful evening with Bruce who regaled us with tales from his time in the Far East, a well travelled and informative Gentlemen. Bella offers aromatherapy massages, we can recommend the full body massage for total relaxation. Thank you both for your hospitality, we will definitely be back. Karen, Rob, Dave & Nicky.

Hi to all, Many thanks for your review of our cottage and hope to see you on your next visit; I owe you some reflexology and massage. Best wishes Bruce and Bella

If you hanker after a relaxing break,chilled out wining and dining on your own terrace,by your pool,THIS is the property for YOU. ! Many thanks to hosts Bella and Bruce for making it so special.

Thank you for your lovely review and happy that you enjoyed your stay as much as we enjoyed you company. Very best wishes. Bruce and Bella

“Fantastic, a house and location like something out of a dream.”

Reviewed 24 Feb 2013

My wife and I stayed here for a week in the summer of 2011. We had a fantastic time, the surrounding mountains and scenery is stunning and so peaceful. We were looking for a relaxing, peaceful time and that's exactly what we got. Having your own pool right outside the front door is even better than I imagined and Bruce and Bella's hospitality was second to none. On the odd occasion when we got lost nearby or were looking for somewhere nice to eat we were able to give them a call and they were always happy to help. I could not recommend this place more, it's also a very short, easy drive from Porto which has an airport into which we can fly directly with Ryanair from Ireland. We will definitely be back.

Thank you very much for your review and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

“Everything you could want!”

Reviewed 21 Feb 2013

Delightful cottage with a crystal clear pool a few steps away from the front door for those refreshing early morning dips or to cool down at the end of a long day's touring around this most stunning part of Central Portugal. Set in very peaceful village but just a short drive away from good restaurants, river beaches, historical places of interest for all ages and nightlife in the nearby City of Coimbra. Bella and Bruce were very welcoming and made us feel at home immediately, and on hand to give us advice when required. The secure car parking was a bonus too!

Thank you very much for your review and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

“Relaxing Heaven!”

Reviewed 14 Feb 2013

We had the most fantastic week at Casa Branca. It is a lovely no-nonsense property that served our needs as a family of four perfectly. The supermarket is very close by and the set out of the property made everything so easy - we had barbecues every night. The pool is as alluring as the photos indicate. . The surrounding area is really lovely and the temperature in August was perfect - warm but never unpleasant. Having breakfast in the sun every morning was a particular pleasure - I wish I was there now!

Thank you for your lovely review. You and the family will always be welcomed to come back one day. Bruce and Bella

“Compact but very comfortable cottage in a beautiful area of Portugal”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2013

Bruce and Bella (villa owners and next-door neighbours) were very helpful and welcoming but unobtrusive. The cottage was spotless and had everything we needed for a family of four. There are so many interesting and beautiful places to visit in this area of Portugal - it makes a great base and nice to be able to have a dip in the pool to cool off after a day's sight-seeing.

Thank you for your review and to know you enjoyed yourselves at Casa Branca. Best wishes Bruce and Bella
